Amazon Prime members really do have all the fun. Yes, you have to pay an annual fee to be a member, but the benefits — two-day free shipping, instant access to movies on Amazon Prime Video, discounts at Whole Foods — totally outweigh the cost of admission.

Here’s a perk that most people (even Prime members) might not know about: Membership gives you access to Amazon’s "secret" section of sales. There's actually a hidden hub that's dedicated to "Just For Prime" deals, so it’s been really hush-hush... until now. The cat’s out of the bag!

If you’re not a Prime member, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial to take advantage of all the savings, including free two-day shipping. If you decide to stay with the service, it’ll run you $119 per year (about $10 per month), and you can cancel anytime.

Fire TV Stick Lite

Watch more TV for less with the Fire TV Stick Lite — on sale for just $20 (down from $30) for Amazon Prime members. It’s easy to set up: It plugs into just about any HD or 4K TV’s HDMI ports, syncs to Wi-Fi and then provides access to hundreds of streaming apps and channels, including Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, Disney+, YouTube, Prime Video, Starz, Showtime and more. If you're looking to cut the cord with your cable provider, this is perfect.

"I admit that the thought of cutting off cable caused me actual emotional pain," shared an Amazon shopper. "But so did paying that cable bill. The Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite delivers everything I need for TV viewing. I am not missing cable at all! I am so happy that this technology is available and delivers television viewing in a remarkably easy and painless way at such an affordable cost. Now, what to do with that $120 extra per month?"

And for anyone wondering: The Fire TV Stick Lite is the same as the standard Fire TV Stick but with a different remote. This remote has Alexa voice assistant built-in, but it doesn’t have a TV on/off switch or volume controls, which is why it's deemed the "Lite" version.

Bring the party with you! On sale for $61 for Prime members only (was $90), the TrebLab FX100 Bluetooth Speaker is just seven inches long, but it's a beast. It turns out rich audio with unbelievable clarity and deep, booming bass with up to 35 hours of playback per charge. It syncs to smartphones in a snap, and maintains a solid connection up to 33 feet. The speaker is waterproof and weather-resistant, and Amazon shoppers are loving it.

"This TrebLab speaker is awesome," raved a happy five-star reviewer. "...It has great sound quality, enormous battery life and is super durable. I have taken it to the beach multiple times, had sand thrown on it, even left it out in the rain and it has never missed a beat. I've used it for several hours for multiple days at the beach and only used one-fourth of the battery. It also connects easily via Bluetooth. With the D-Ring attachment, I've attached it to my mountain bike to jam while riding. Very impressed and highly recommend..."

"I absolutely love these masks," raved a savvy Amazon shopper. "Perfect size, soft material with room to breathe. The nose wire and chin rest keeps them from slipping or moving around. Kept their shape after washing..."

Never get stuck in the middle of nowhere without a battery pack for your phone. This Yacikos Portable Charger — on sale for $18, a cool $11 off, for Prime members — has a fast and reliable stream of juice for phones, laptops and tablets with two USB ports and a single microUSB port. It can charge most phones up to six times before the battery bank itself needs to recharge.

"I had bought a handful of portable chargers, since I’m always on the go and there’s never a wall outlet when you need one," wrote a satisfied Amazon shopper. "Its claim for 26,800mAh [milliamp Hour] is right because I charged my phone and other devices for a whole day and it only lost 50 percent. Overall, I’m beyond impressed with the quality and price of this power bank and would definitely buy it again as a gift for one of my friends."

The Kami YI Smart Security Camera is more than just a camera — it has an optional Emergency Response Service that can instantly connect you to your local fire, EMS services and police for around-the-clock security and peace of mind.

"So far so good. Just set these up in my parents’ house as we have a lot of people coming through to care for my father," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "The setup was crazy-easy! The images are awesome. They record 24/7 and you don't have to get the Cloud storage if you don't want it. The cams record to MicroSD card (sold separately) and when you go back to review footage it shows the entire timeline along with markings where activity was present..."

At $70 for four (Prime members only!) you’ll pay just $17.50 per cam.

If you need a new gaming controller for the Nintendo Switch, this deal is for you. The Kutime Wireless Gaming Controller is on sale for $21, down from $40, for Amazon Prime members only. Extremely comfortable, it features a solid faux leather grip and up to 10 hours of battery life, plus its buttons are completely re-mappable to best suit your gaming experience. It offers three levels of vibration, so you can customize the amount of shock feedback you want to receive. Bluetooth-enabled, you can pair it with just about any laptop, desktop, smartphone or tablet for PC and mobile gaming. And Amazon shoppers love that it comes with an impressive ‘rumble’ feature too.

"If you want a good controller and don’t want to pay for the Nintendo Switch Pro controller, this is a really nice one," raved a delighted gamer. "I opted to buy this over the PowerA controllers because the PowerA ones don’t have rumble. The rumble on this controller is great. It also has a good weight to it so it feels sturdy. The battery seems to last several days of playing, and it’s rechargeable using an included USB-C cable which makes it easy to charge..."

This top-rated Coredy Robot Vacuum Cleaner (R300) is on sale for $123 — a sweet $36 off for Prime members. The powerful robot comes with built-in sensors, so it can navigate furniture and stairs smoothly. At just under three inches high, the Coredy robot vacuum cleaner can also scoot under beds and couches with ease. Plus, it’s incredibly quiet, and its nimble wheels transition from floors to carpets like it’s nothing.

"I never thought I’d need something like this, but now that I have it. I cannot figure out how I’ve lived without one this long," wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. "It gives me the opportunity to do literally anything but actually clean my own floors. And y’all, I hate cleaning floors. You can ask my husband. Cause he knows. Cause he is the only one who ever does it. So I don’t actually even know why I’m stoked, but I am!"

If you’re having trouble waking up in the morning, it's time for a new alarm clock. The HeimVision Sunrise Alarm Clock mimics sunrise, but in your bedroom, to help you wake up gradually and naturally. Choose from seven different chimes — including birdsong, Hawaii wave, streams, beep beep, win dells, chord, ringtone and piano — or FM radio.

And right now, if you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can get it for $40, or $6 off.

"I need to wake up very early for work, and it's difficult for me to feel motivated to get out of bed when it's still dark outside," shared a savvy shopper. "I purchased the Heimvision Sunrise Alarm Clock to gradually brighten my room prior to my alarm, so that I would wake up to light and feel more energized, despite the early hour of the day. The Heimvision Sunrise Alarm Clock perfectly fulfills this need. I set the 'sunrise' to start 20 minutes before my desired wake-up time, and when my alarm goes off, I open my eyes to 'sunshine' and feel energized to start my day..."

On sale for $27 for Prime members, the PrimeTracking Personal GPS Tracker is a compact tracking device with a super-long 14-day battery life. Once the GPS tracker is stashed under a car seat, it can give you real-time stats of its movement, even in the most remote places — thanks to PrimeTracking’s 4G global satellite technology. Locations are viewable on the company's phone app; you’ll see a pin on Google Maps.

It comes in handy for keeping tabs on company vehicles or those used by your kids, parents or grandparents, so you’ll always know where they are in case of an emergency.

"Very impressed. We bought the tracker for our real estate agents to keep track of them and their showings. Everything was very accurate," shared a delighted shopper. "The support is beyond anything I ever experienced. At the end of the day, you never know when you show a house who you are showing it to. We like to be careful. This way we can keep everyone safe by giving them a tracker to make sure they are all right. We also use the tracker to [monitor] our teens' driving. It tells us how fast they are driving, which honestly is my favorite part."
